Iâ€™ve got a secret and I’m not messing around.Â It’s a secret so many of us want to know and learn. So many of us search for it year after year. I know you’ve been there, just like I have. I also know that you see jaw-dropping photos of women making major shifts within their livesâ€”â€”on many levelsâ€”within their careers, health, and wellness. Â
So what is the secret?
The Secret Sauce to Your Weight Loss, Health, Success + More
Women are minimizing their anxiety
Women are getting more focused
Women are reversing their thyroid and diabetes
Life is not about weight loss, but I’m not in the dark here and I know it’s still such a top thought for SO many of us. So yes, shedding pounds is the cherry on top, but many layers within are being transformed FIRST.
You know that feelingâ€¦.that feeling of LIFE, ENERGY, being GRATEFUL AND FREEDOMâ€¦.It’s not a dream, you CAN FEEL that freaking “high” on life. (natural high of course)
You want to know the truth, the secret to this feeling I finally have?Â
It all boils down to thoughts and actions day in and day out.
This success, this freedom, this health, comes from work.Â
It comes from showing up.
Did you know that our happiness stems from 40% of thoughts and actions? We have control to be happy, itâ€™s working on our daily thoughts, habits, and actions.
You canâ€™t blame anybody else.
I remember being really unhappy with my life and when I was working a full time 9-5 jobâ€¦. Ugh, so not me. I love working, but I thrive off freedom and flexibility.. FUNâ€¦
When I was unhappy, I was blaming othersâ€¦ it wasnâ€™t until I took responsibility and changed my view of my journey that I started to thriveâ€¦.
It wasnâ€™t until I started to practice gratitude for ALL THAT I HADâ€¦.and how freaking awesome my life was.
I was alive, I had family, friends, I traveled the worldâ€¦ literallyâ€¦ South Africa, Dubai, France, Switzerland, Colombia, Amsterdam, â€” I lived in Londonâ€¦
All choices I made. I saved, I traveled. I worked in London to travel more and experience life. I went into debt from traveling too much and partying too hardâ€¦
I survived. I shifted. I grew. I asked for help. I showed up. I thought outside of the box. I sacrificedâ€¦
I work hard for health, freedom, happinessâ€¦ and today â€” Iâ€™m feeling it. Are you?
I want you toâ€¦ I hope you doâ€¦
You deserve it.
